3. Eddie Jackson records an interception against the Carolina Panthers

It is not quite as bold without calling out a name, but this game screams the Chicago Bears secondary getting right for the first time all season. That would mean an Eddie Jackson interception or at least someone on that unit grabbing a pick. 

Bryce Young has seven interceptions this year, and he is coming off of a game where he threw three, including a pick-six. He is going to be without DJ Chark, so his pass catchers, who were already bad, are getting worse. Now, he gets a Bears secondary that will be healthy for the first time all season. 

Kyler Gordon was out in week one, Eddie Jackson was out in week two, and when they both returned, it was Jaquan Brisker out last week. The five-man secondary of Jackson, Gordon, Brisker, Jaylon Johnson, and Tyrique Stevenson have played 16 snaps together since week one. All five are projected to start on Thursday.

So, a rookie quarterback will be on the road for a short week and a night game in a wild environment. He has weakened pass catchers, and the Chicago Bears secondary is finally healthy. This group is going to pick off Bryce Young. The best bet is Eddie Jackson.
